⚽ Shearer: Arsenal players clearly want rid of Wenger ⚽



Newcastle United legend Alan Shearer took aim at Arsenal’s players after defeat at West Brom.


The Gunners fell to a fifth loss in seven matches on Saturday lunchtime after falling 3-1 at West Brom.


“There has been a lot of chat about Arsene Wenger’s future,” said Shearer.


“There hasn’t been a lot spoken from his players. But his players spoke today in that game.


“Judging by that performance and other recent performances, they don’t want him in that job.


“Arsene Wenger would have looked at his players today and asked for a reaction. They lacked heart, they lacked fight, they lacked direction. Every player other than [Alexis] Sanchez was pretty embarrassing.


“West Brom bullied Arsenal all over the park. They were much better in every position and deserve a lot of credit for doing that.”
